Laura Legg

Greetings from the Waidner Admissions House! I’m delighted to write you from a beloved office space with a view of Morgan Field where I began my professional career.

As an educator, I've worked for nearly 25 years in higher education and at independent schools. I’ve guided students and families from both sides of the college admissions desk. In North Carolina, I served as director of the college office at an independent school. And in Washington, D.C., I coordinated alumni-admissions programs and events and collaborated with alumni volunteers.

I both enjoy and gravitate toward positions that afford me the chance to meet people and to build relationships. I look forward to doing that again now that I’ve come home to Dickinson.

As a student, I benefited from the guidance of advisors, professors and informal mentors, like many Dickinson peers. I majored in international studies (with a concentration in German), but I enjoyed classes in other departments that allowed me to explore the liberal arts.

As an alumna, I remained connected with college friends through unofficial campus visits and regional Dickinson events. Recently, I served on Dickinson’s Alumni Council, a group of engaged leaders. I hope you will have the chance to meet members of the alumni community during your Dickinson exploration.

The college advising relationship has been meaningful to me as a professional and person. To witness and participate in the journey students undertake is inspiring. I’m proud to share my Dickinson experiences and look forward to meeting students on campus and on the road.

I invite you to contact me with any questions as you explore Dickinson.
